The 2-story brick courthouse originally resembled the nearby Tyrrell County Courthouse but has been somewhat altered including removal of the front roof dormer and addition of a porch. Not long after the building was erected, the county found defects in it and brought suit against the firm as reported in the News and Observer, November 18, 1908.
